I. What a Reiki workshop
means to you
This workshop is to develop your inner potentiality
to activate the healing energy of Reiki, giving you
necessary skills, knowledge and information. At the
workshop, Reiki Master Teacher, Masaru Kato, will transfer
a specific initiating energy to you. This process is
called attunement, which would open your energetic channels.
Given the attunement, you will find yourself capable
of transferring the life force energy to yourself and
Once your energy systems are opened up, this will have
profound effects physically, emotionally, mentally and
spiritually. You will be awakened to the core of your
being much deeper. You will get closer to the center
of your existence. Where you had thought to be alone
and alienated, you will be with all the world energetically.
With this awareness, you will experience inner peace
and calmness, thereby viewing yourself very positively
and dealing with others very generously. As you can
see here, learning Reiki is considered as one of the
useful tools to reach enlightenment; a deep knowing
To participate in this workshop, no prior experience
or knowledge is required. Please note that no religious
intent is involved in this workshop. There will be no
solicitation for contributions or sales of any irrelevant
goods. The workshop will be purely for learning the
healing system of Reiki. Expectedly, a Reiki workshop
will be compatible with any religious believers, because
its focus is on inner potentiality of a human, not on
specific dogma of any religion.
No matter what your beliefs, religion, goals, or objectives
are, everyone will be welcomed with the warmest regards.
To name a few, this workshop will be beneficial for
those who have the following interests:
- To promote your health physically and mentally
- To have self-empowerment
- To raise the level of your consciousness, to be
- To provide healing toward friends and family members
- To become a professional energy healer
- To improve your medical skills by having energetic
insights of human body (to reshape your medical skills
from a spiritual standpoint)
II. Process of learning
A. Four Levels (or four degrees).
Traditionally, the Reiki training extends over major
three steps (levels or degrees), each of which is self-contained.
As you progress from one level to the next, you will
be adjusted to the higher vibration of Reiki energy.
Due to its incremental fashion, everyone should take
the Reiki classes from the first level, then, the second,
and the third, consecutively. No one can skip a certain
level. Even though some Reiki masters teach the third
level together with the teacher training, our program
separates them and the teacher training is an independent
level, the 4th.
Put it briefly, the main focus at every level will
be as follows (for the details, please see the below):
Level 1: Self-healing using Reiki, History of Reiki
Level 2: Healing on others, distant healing, time transcending
Level 3: Empowerment of your awareness and healing capability
Level 4: Teacher training
Each of the Reiki levels will be held as a one day
seminar, with students gathering, either on Saturday
or Sunday. We will spend one whole day, approximately
eight hours. We will have attunement, lecture/discussion,
meditation, etc, which will altogether complete one
level of Reiki training.
The pace of stepping up one level to another will be
up to your inner growth. Some may spend just a year
to complete all four levels, while others may need several
years. Please remember that this is not a matter of
speed competition. You do not need to compare yourself
with other participants of a workshop. “Faster”
is not necessarily “better.” The matter
of focus should be how much you could be “open”
to the Reiki energy. How “open” is a primal
focus, not how “fast.”
Also, it will totally depend on your inner needs to
what level you might accomplish. There will be no ill
effect on you, when you drop out at a certain level.
If you decide to stop at level 1 or 2, it will become
no problem at all.
B. The necessity of daily energetic clearing
Once the channel of Reiki energy is opened by the attunement,
you will never lose the ability of Reiki healing. You
do not need to do a tough training to retain the basic
potentiality of Reiki. However, it is very important
to use the energy channel as often as possible. Imagine
a water pipe that is used only occasionally. This pipe
may accumulate a clog that impedes the water flow. The
water coming out of that pipe is less pure with contaminants.
The same thing could happen on your energy channel.
Every moment you encounter a certain emotional or mental
issue (say, getting upset to your friend), your emotional
reactions will be somehow stored in your energy system
like the clog in the water pipe. Such an energetic clog
accumulates day by day, if you do not flush them out.
The more often you use the energy channel, the fewer
clogs accumulate in it, therefore, the more easily and
strongly the life force energy will flow through it.
After you accomplish the Level 1, it is highly recommended
to do the Reiki self-healing on yourself, or do the
Reiki healing on someone, or do the meditation that
runs the life force energy, for about an hour or at
least a half hour for almost every day. This is particularly
important for those who want to become a professional
energy healer or who want to raise the consciences level
to a blissful state. In this regard, our Reiki workshop
will give you detailed instructions; what you need to
Although the energetic practice every day is very important,
the above is not saying that you “have to”
do it. If you cannot spare your time for the daily clearing,
it does not pose any serious problem to you. This is
somehow similar to how often you clean your room. If
you want the room stay decent all the time, you need
to clean it regularly. If you are tolerant to a messy
room, you will just leave it. Like that, your energy
system needs to be as clean as possible, if you want
to get the optimal benefit of Reiki. If you do not need
to maximize the Reiki power, there is no obligation
to do daily energetic clearing.
C. Opportunities to follow up
We will set up the following opportunities to support
the attendants or graduates of our Reiki program.

case by case basis.
